Loosening the cap will key it out. The system is self venting so there is no special bleed process like on an E36 with low mount tank. The self venting just gets air into the expansion tank where it naturally goes to the top. You still have to let it out. Typically this happens naturally as you are checking the coolant level after draining and refilling.
Thank you!
